Fremont Township in conjunction with Republic Services, is pleased to announce the new expanded solid waste collection program for all Fremont Township residents which include a cart for each residence for the containment of their solid waste. Your new collection day will be Wednesday. First collection will be December 7, 2016.
How will this system work?
Republic Services will provide each household with a 95-gallon curb cart that has the capacity of (3) 32-gallon trashcans. On your collection day, Wednesday, simply place your Cart at the curb with the handle facing your house. Make sure you have a minimum distance of four feet away from other objects such as mailboxes, parked cars, and even your bulky item. Republic Services new automated collection truck will then pick up the Cart, empty it, and return it to its original location. It's that simple!
Solid Waste Collection
The Curb Cart should be placed at the curb NO LATER than 6:00 AM on your collection day. If you have more waste than what your cart can handle, please bag and place NEXT TO the cart, NOT ON TOP of the cart. The driver can easily empty the cart, then refill it with the other bag and empty again. Generate more than the contents of one cart? Need another cart? Call Republic Services Customer Service for details.
With the right care your new Cart will last for many years without needing maintenance. Pleas use trash bags to contain your waste inside the Cart. This will reduce periodic cleanings for the Cart. Your Cart has smooth surfaces that allow it to be easily cleaned with a regular garden hose and dishwashing soap. Do not place hot ashes, construction debris, and/or hazardous waste in the Cart. Please do not paint or write on the Cart. Each Cart is labeled with a serial number. Residents should take note of the serial number of their specific Cart. If it is lost or stolen, please provide that number to the police then provide a copy of the police report to Republic and they will provide you a replacement at no additional charge.
If you move, do not take the cart with you. The cart has been assigned to the property address along with the serial number and should be available for the next occupant/owner of the household.
Items prohibited are: dirt, sold or rock, hazardous waste of any kind, liquids of any kind including paint, flammable materials such as oil, or gas, concrete, hot ashes; yard waste of any kind, large amounts of remodeling or demolition materials, whole tires or any other material to be determined as prohibited by State Statute.
Bulky Item Collection
One (1) large item may be placed curbside each week for collection. Bulky items shall be bundled (carpet) in parcels not to exceed two (2) foot by four (4) feet in length and/or fifty (50) pounds in weight. We respectfully request that you call Republic's offices at least 24 hours in advance so that the appropriate equipment can be dispatched.
In the event that Republic is unable to provide service due to inclement weather, collection will take place the net day following the scheduled collection day, or as soon as weather conditions allow. The Township will immediately be notified should service be interrupted due to bad weather conditions. Please feel free to contact Republic if you have any questions regarding service during inclement weather.
When a holiday falls on a weekday, there will be no collection on that day, and the rest of the week's refuse collection will be one day later than usual. Holidays observed are New Year's, Independence Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
Should Fremont Township residents have any questions, please call Republic at (800) 438-0966.
